North Texas Trail Runners Named USATF MUT Contributor of the Year 2004
USATF Mountain Ultra Trail Running Council has named the North Texas Trail Runners the 2004 Contributor of the Year. The NTTR earned top honors for their support of the Ultrarunners Supporting Ultrarunners (USU) fund. The NTTR club donated $1200 raised from the Rockledge Rumble and Cross Timbers trail runs to help this year's United States 100Km team that competed in The Netherlands. NTTR was formed and began the Rockledge Rumble eight years ago specifically to raise money to offset the travel expenses of the USATF organized ultra team. During that time the organization has donated over $10,000 to the U.S. 100Km team.
Other Contributor of the Year nominees in 2004 were Teva for their continued support of US mountain running (and a past winner of this award in 2002), and Vail Recreation District for their support of US mountain running including a nationally acclaimed mountain running circuit and hosting the first NACAC Mountain Running Championships at the Teva Vail HillClimb in July 2004.
